Same here. There are a number of sites that can host files for free, but they only hold your stuff there temporarily. That's typically for about a month unless people keep on clicking the download link.

Here's a few:
SaveFile: http://www.savefile.com/
RapidShare: http://www.rapidshare.de/
MegaUpload.com: http://www.megaupload.com/

There is no sequencer in it, so no, not really. However, I'm slowly working on a beat that is using nothing but the 202. What I've been doing is, getting some loops that sound good, then recording variations of them with different drums played live into a Tascam 4 track tape machine, then re-sampling that back into the 202 as a loop with drums on it, then doing different variations of that, and then just hitting a pad with that loop on it, and letting it play out for the 4 bars, then hitting the next pad. This results in a pretty grimy sound, as I'm going 202 to 4 track tape back to 202 and then sometimes repeat, but it's mad fun. Makes no absolutly no sense from a workflow standpoint when I have an MPC sitting right next to it, but I'm having fun with it. haha.


Look forward to hearin that one.

When I 1st started makin beats I had the yamaha djx keyboard a digital 4 track and my roommate had a sp-202 that I would use all the time!Imma try to look in the archives and post some of those beats up!The 202 is a great machine!Funny how I went from the 202 to reason to mpc1000 and back home to the sp-404 or sp-series!

realizing this is a super-old post that's comin back from the dead, but i have to get in on it.
have a 202 that i borrowed from a friend. it was my gateway drug to the 404 i use now.
when i was using the 202, strictly, made a little beat, output to the pc. tried workin it on the pc w/ some bass/guitar, etc. not feelin it.
later tried outputting the beat from the pc to the 404, workin it over, again, not feeling it.
THEN tried outputting the beat from the 202 straight to the 404 (ie: no pc middleman) and voila! that's the right sound, the right frequency blend, the right everything to work over with the more robust 404.
i donno how to explain it, other than maybe the bitrate, compression, etc., had an impact.
all that to say that i can't use the 202 for what i want to do (too limited) but it DOES have a place in my set up and certainly a place in my heart.
plus, you know, orange and black? fuckin rad.

Hi,

I'm new to this forum but I own a sp-202 to. I bought it last month for 50Euro and it was in excellent shape. It didn't came with a smartmedia card. :(
But after searching I've found a 4MB/5V smartmedia card for 25Euro's! :D

I'll be using the SP-202 with my Redsound SoundBite sampler. I'm a dj so now I can prepare samples and load them in the SP-202. When I'm dj'ing I can play (multiple) samples with or without effects and resample them in the Soundbite. It's maybe a difficult process but I like the flow. Preparing samples at home and rework them while DJ'ing.

(The soundbite has a volatile memory)

I know but an SP-555 here costs about 450Euro's. Maybe one day I'll buy an SP-555... :)

The "normal" price for an SP-202 here in Belgium is 100Euro's and 4MB/5V cards are about 75Euro, so I'm glad I've found this "cheap" solution. And it does the job. :D

Damn, thats way too expensive for both those machines. I remember when I went to europe my carry on bag was filled with skateboard decks that I sold over there for a profit of like $20 U.S.

Wut up, guys? As a user of 2 MS-1s, an SP-202, SP-303, and the old DR-202, it seems fit I should create an account. Glad there is a place for SP users to share their knowledge and the fruits of their labor.

My first set-up consisted of a borrowed 8-track tape recorder and OG Yamaha DJX keyboard, and my SP-202. I copped the 202 in '98 and quickly started looping up bits and pieces of my vinyl collection. I only recently got it back after I had dropped it off at a repair tech to get the headphone jack fixed. It's good to have it back. I bought it for $150 with the maxed out 4mb 5 volt memory card and I'm surprised such a bare bones unit is worth today what I paid for it in '98.

Beatjitzu's 202 excursions led me to lust for it and make it priority number one to get it back.
